While Washington state divorce law considers all that the couple builds and accrues during their marriage as community property, that doesn't necessarily mean a 50-50 split of assets - including six homes, according to Business Insider - but the court attempts to split assets (and debts), fair and equitably.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' divorce from MacKenzie is one of the hottest topics right now.
Just after the announcement of separation, few romantic texts sent by the CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos to American news anchor Lauren Sanchez have been leaked by The Enquirer. "We've had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursing ventures and adventures".
Sanchez is separated from her husband, Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell, who is reported to be a friend of Bezos.
The Bezos - who met before Amazon struck it rich - didn't have a prenup, TMZ reports.
A source close to the Bezos told DailyMail.com that the Amazon founder only began seeing Sanchez after separating from his wife, however, the National Enquirer claims the affair went on behind their spouses' backs. Jeff Bezos, 54, is at the top of most list, and his fortune now hovers around $137 billion. I want to hold you tight.... They also said that they will remain friends as they have to raise four children. According to SEC filings, Bezos owns approximately 80 million shares of the company.
Indeed, most on Wall Street appear to be betting that the couple - which said in a statement this week they will "continue our shared lives as friends" - won't let their problems become Amazon's. "Sanchez and Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell Wednesday in 2005 and have two young children". "We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for everyone one of the years we have been married to each other", the duo's statement read.
Yet, in lieu of this revelation that Bezos is, uh, seemingly less skilled at the art of seduction than he is at building multi-billion dollar empires, it still stands that he is literally the richest man in the world-and that fact has not been lost on people.
Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie Bezos, announced on Wednesday that they have made a decision to divorce after more than 25 years of marriage.
